Cristiano Ronaldo speaks when he wants, as he confirmed to reporters. Obviously, he also contacts whoever he wants.
Cristiano Ronaldo was not scheduled to address the media on Monday but appeared in front of the press to answer questions. Inevitably, the interview in which he claimed he was ‘betrayed’ and ‘disrespected’ by Manchester United was the hottest topic of conversation for the fivefold Ballon d’Or.
Ronaldo persists and signs
The two-part interview on Talk TV has shaken the English club to such an extent that its leaders are currently considering what disciplinary action to take. The possibility of Ronaldo being fired is not ruled out.
CR7, however, does not regret anything he said, nor the time of the broadcast of the interview. “Timing is always timing. From your end, it’s easy to see how we can choose opportune times. Sometimes you write truths, sometimes you write lies. I don’t have to worry about what the other thoughts. I talk when I want to. Everyone knows who I am, what I believe in.”
Ronaldo added that he doesn’t fear penalties from Man Utd, saying he is ‘bulletproof’ and ‘armored’. The only chosen one who has been concerned about the Portuguese star at the moment is the fact that his teammates in the selection are questioned about his situation. He asked the journalists to leave them alone.
His future is uncertain
As he prepares to play his 5th World Cup, Ronaldo therefore continues to feed the transfer window section even if his rebound options seem reduced. Bayern Munich reflected on the effectiveness of a transfer this summer but have since distanced themselves from the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, while Chelsea are the only possibility in the Premier League. Karim Benzema’s injury with France freed up the centre-forward position at Real Madrid, and Ronaldo has reportedly offered to the club at the Bernabeu, where he is the all-time top scorer. However, the Casa Blanca are unlikely to bring him back.
MLS appears to be a possible destination for Ronaldo, with Inter Miami and LAFC to be announced. Nevertheless, everything suggests that he still wants to play at the highest level in Europe.
